AFF Philippines - Chicken Adobo with Garlic Fried Rice (Singanag)

This chicken dish is one of the ever famous dish from Philippines I often heard. So this time, I give it a try
And I'm glad that it's very well received by the family :)
The chicken is so tasty, tangy, garlicky, sweet at the same time. Finger licking good!
I served the dish with garlic fried rice. The recipe mentioned that it's cooked Pinoy style but I found it just like any other garlic fried rice. It's nice, fragrant and tasty :)
These 2 dishes are great together :)
